The AFC North has been called the “Black and Blue” division. The division is the AFC’s version of past “Norris Divisions,” priding itself on its toughness and defense. This is never more prevalent in two teams than in the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. The 2 teams are known for having strong defenses and have become one of the best rivalries in football. Both organizations have recently won two Super Bowls apiece and dominated the AFC North for over a decade.

Last season was a different story. After years of dominance both organizations had a down year. With the Ravens missing the playoffs the season after winning the Super Bowl. Instead a talented Cincinnati Bengals team finally lived up to their potential winning the division. Both the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers are expected to bounce back from sub-par years to challenge the Bengals this season. With the division having three quality teams the AFC North should be one, if not the most competitive division in the NFL.
